Savory Sides

With the holidays approaching, I have been searching for new ideas for side dishes. And I have a WINNER!! Roasted Cauliflower with red bell pepper, roasted garlic and Parmesan cheese.
It is light but filling and the red bell pepper gives it a festive look
1 head of cauliflower
1 red bell pepper
2 or 3 cloves of garlic, roasted (drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil, place in foil and roast at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Cut up cauliflower into florets, chop bell pepper and place both in a 11x7 baking dish. Chop garlic cloves and add to dish. Salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Roast at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes, or until crisp tender. Top with cheese and bake an additional 5-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.
